interesting is that in recent months we've noticed a remarkably different tone coming from former new york city mayor rudy giuliani on these issues and this is not the first time that he's made comments that have gotten a lot of attention. i think that a lot of folks originally remember him as the strong patriot who defended america after the 9/11 terror attack. he is increasingly grabbing headlines for his tone on the issue of the debate that we're having in our country about police and law enforcement. >> we ins he's also taking on the doj report claiming there was little evidence to prove racism within the ferguson police department. in. >> there's two points i would make about the report. the first is that darin wilson there are no civil rights charges going to be filed against him. that being said the ferguson city counsel just earlier this week voted to unanimously get
rid of the john shaw the city manager, because of the report which said that there were cases of racism in the ferguson police department, so they viewed this as a systemic institutional problem but they did not bring race charges against darin wilson. clearly this is a sensitive issue and one that has a lot of folks giving this the time and the attention that it deserves because quite frankly, we need to have a conversation about policy in this country with regards to police enforcement and race relations. >> if nothing else it is sparking conversation. thank you so much kevin. we appreciate it. you have a great weekend. stick around for michelle obama's dance moves on ellen plus is robert downy jr. coming through big time as a real life superhe ror. ncludes chronic bronchitis and emphysema. spiriva is a once-daily inhaled

we're able to work together to come up with good answers. in the same way that you can't generalize about police officers who do an extraordinarily tough job, overwhelmingly they do it professionally, you can't generalize about protesters who it turns up had legit grievances. it showed they were being stopped african americans, mainly so the city could raise money even though these were unjust. >> good morning. that's the president last night. in we welcome you to "way too early." on this friday morning the world community is pushing back against those 48 republican senators who signed the letters and all others who oppose a deal with iran. >> and will ferrell goes the full deion sanders as the
